This is a colorful 3" paperweight that is in great condition.
I believe that it was madein Murano by Fratelli Toso in the 1950's. There are minute millefiori ( some of the smallest I've seen) and twisted pink/white ribbons that are set ona translucent green ground.
Loveing most things glass I find paperweights show all the skill and art of their maker.

    HI GSO , I'd love it to be earlier and it possibly is due to the very fine millefiori but ..... have seen similar that others date to the 1950's .
    I was being cautious on the date ... If anyone has referance to point me to please do ...my referance on paperweights are ancient. and coffee table ish .

    I don't know much about paperweights.. to me it looks like it could very well be older. But, I don't know much about it.

    Ozmarty, this is a great page for learning more about paperweights. I emailed them once about a paperweights of mine and got a kind answer where they told me the age of my paperweight. http://www.pwts.co.uk/
